Recipe Dark Chocolate Bark
This recipe for Dark Chocolate bark substitutes peppermint candy with fresh pomegranates. Plus, the addition of pistachio nuts adds the perfect sweet and salty flavor.
This recipe only requires a microwave to melt the chocolate.
Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and melt for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between each session until the chocolate is smooth.
Dark Chocolate Bark Ingredients
There are only 3 ingredients to make this tasty candy.
- 16 oz. Dark Chocolate Semi-sweet Block
- 3/4 Cup Pomegranate Seeds
- 1/2 Cup Chopped Pistachio Nut (salted)
After melting the chocolate, add 1/2 of the pomegranate seeds and pistachio nuts to the chocolate. Then stir until well mixed.
Next, pour the remaining fruit and nuts over the dark chocolate bark.
Finally, use a spoon or spatula to gently press the topping into the chocolate bark. Place the bark in the freezer for approx. thirty minutes or until it is firm enough to break.
Prepare Dark Chocolate Bark for Storage
Bring by breaking the frozen chocolate into bite-size pieces. Place in an air-tight storage container and keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve. It keeps well for 1-2 weeks, depending on the freshness of the pomegranates.

Remove from the freezer and break into bite-size pieces.
Store in airtight container and keep in refrigerator for 1-2 weeks
Use fresh pomegranate seeds to prolong storage. I recommend using a fresh pomegranate and removing the seeds instead of buying the seeds already removed.
If placing in a gift container, add a protective press & seal wrap to ensure the package is airtight, and keep it in the refrigerator until just before serving or gifting.
